Descriptive Information
Brief Title  ICMJE Evaluation of Housing First Initiative for Chicago Homeless With Chronic Medical Illness
Official Title  ICMJE Evaluation of the Housing First Initiative of Chicago Housing for Health Partnership
Brief Summary The study hypothesizes that early housing after hospitalization with case management integrated into the health and housing systems, will results in decreased use of costly health services (i.e., hospitalizations and Emergency Room visits) with no negative affect on health. To address this hypothesis the investigators implemented a Randomized controlled trial of 407 homeless adults with chronic medical illness in Chicago. Eligible homeless adults were enrolled during a hospitalization to intervention - Early housing with case management - or usual care - usual case management and housing options. The investigators followed the sample for 18 months with assessments at baseline, 1,3,6,9,12 and 18 months are enrollment. Study measures include Quality of Life, Health service use, Alcohol and Substance Use, housing and social and demographic characteristics.
